Locations to Recycle your Christmas Tree in Denver & Aurora

Recycle your Christmas tree



Your Christmas tree gave you so much joy during the holidays, but now may have a brown look, starting to get very dry and can be a fire hazard.     It is time to turn this brown tree into GREEN.   Be sure to remove all tinsel, ornaments, garlands, stands and lights before recycling.   Only real trees will be eligible.


Denver Residents -


You can now give your once beautiful Christmas tree a second life and recycle it with Denver Recycle Tree program. Denver Public Works Solid Waste Management will be collecting Christmas trees for recycling starting Monday, January 2nd. All Denver residents whose trash is collected by Denver Public Works Solid Waste Management may participate.    Put your tree out with your regular trash on your regular pick up day.   

The recycling will be in effect through January  11th.  Last year Denver recycled over 18,000 trees.   All Christmas trees will be turned into mulch, and given away in the annual giveaway in May.


Aurora Residents -

The City of Aurora will offer the tree recycling through January 8th at the following sites.

Del Mar Park, 12000 E. 6th Avenue, Aurora, 80011
Olympic Park, 15501 E. Yale Ave, Aurora 80013
Saddle Rock Golf Course, 21705 E. Arapahoe Rd, Aurora 80016

Free tree mulch will be available at the tree drop-off locations, while supplies last between Dec. 30 and Jan 8. Bring a truck, bags, containers and shovels for self-loading.   For more information you can contact them at 303-739-7177.

Love keeping the tree "green" long after the needles turn brown. Good one Joan, and I know folks in Denver and Aurora will appreciate the information.

Joan - one needs to watch where they place the mulch from christmas trees as it is very acidic and can affect some of your plants.  Christmas tree mulch is best be used around evergreens, other uses include yard and garden displays, water retention and weed control.

Joan: This is a very good way to recycle, twice if you consider the mulch that Denver residents will be using in flower beds this spring.

Joan, you know, we have a re-useable tree in our condo unit so we just have to pack it tight into the box and put it in the closet for now. :-)

Joan - yup! Love the recycling.  It reminds me of the paper v plastic battle. Eileen says re-usable is more eco friendly, but I have to ask, what do you do with it when done? Make 1200 toilet scrubbers?  At least it can be composted down, and hopefully came from a tree farm that uses few  pesticides.

Around here, more and more builders are using onsite recycling. They scrap the wood by making wood chips and then mulch the landscaped yards. Way cool!

Have a super 2012!

Joan, we have had an artificial pre-lit tree for the past six years...some of the lights are out and it is such a pain putting the tree together and taking it down....Next year we will get a live tree..recyclying the tree will be easier than putting away an artificial tree.

Kathy, good advice about the acidic nature of the needles.   In Denver we could use the water retention.

Kwee, recycling your Christmas tree is being responsible and helping the envirnonment.

Anita, it is a good program Denver is promoting!

Eileen, I have had those type trees for years also.   You cannot beat the smell of a real tree though!
